Yale-New Haven Medical Center

History

Emergency Medicine is the field of practice concerned with the assessment, stabilization, diagnosis, and disposition of people with acute illness and injury. Emergency practitioners treat the full spectrum of patients using skills ranging from those of a general practitioner to specialists.

The Yale Emergency Scholars (YES) program is a 5-year track that merges our fully accredited emergency medicine residency with a rigorous, SAEM-certified research fellowship. Successful graduates will receive a Master in Health Sciences (MHS) degree from Yale and be able to compete for extramural training and research grants. After the 4th year of training, candidates will be board-prepared residency graduates in emergency medicine.
